Help Produce Greenwald's "Koch Brothers Exposed" Documentary

Reported by Ellen - March 10, 2011 -

Robert Greenwald, the producer/director behind Outfoxed, Rethink Afghanistan and other films, is setting his next documentary sights on the Koch Brothers. But they're asking for your help with this project, which will be a multi-part video series. Become a Producer of Koch Brothers Exposed and get a t-shirt featuring an exclusive Shepard Fairey design of the ‘Koch-topus’.

In a Huffington Post blog, Greenwald wrote,

With a net worth of 43 Billion the Kochs have already spent decades of their lives and over 324 Million of their wealth exerting their influence. The Kochs accomplish their goals by funding a massive array of right wing front groups, think tanks and tea party efforts. They largely operate outside of the public eye, and target their funding to infiltrate public opinion, the media, judicial decisions and legislation. Over three dozen organizations are funded by the brothers, and they spend additional money lobbying and backing conservative candidates. Everything the Kochs do is to fight for a country free from protections and any degree of a social safety net for working Americans.

...Brave New Foundation will work tirelessly to expose the Koch brothers. This new campaign will be like none ever done before. The film will be broken down into issue-focused chapters, each released individually with a flurry of action around them. This campaign will live in film, online actions, grassroots efforts, community gatherings, ground actions, multi-media coverage, artistic components and collaboration with the larger community that is ready to take action. We have the wonderfully talented AgitPop onboard to help expose the Koch brothers, and will be working with many other progressive organizations to increase the shared impact of this effort.
